“Just another Creed clone ______ . . . .”
Pearl Jam (formed 1989) were among the first bands to combine the genres of brutal death metal and Marilyn Monroe. Their texts focus mostly on suicides of old people. Although the debut album, Stan, wasn't a big hit, the other albums were big smashes, including whichever one had that song "Elderly Women Behind The Counter In A Small Town", not to be confused with a porno by the same name. Their only show took place on Eddie Vedder's Bar Mitzvah. As more people wanted them to do more live shows, they decided to become reclusive, and even though everybody knows where they live, they have never been seen again ______ . . . .
History ______ . . . .Edit
They Would Go On To Become Pearl Jam Edit
Pearl Jam is noted as being the explosive force behind the "Big Bang", an action that most scientists, atheists, and LSD abusers believe created the universe. Eddie Vedder (a.k.a. "Sweaty Eddie"), the group's frontman, was born to The Virgin Mary on the sun, and hitched across the galaxy on rouge comets. Vedder came down to Earth by the power of the Holy Spirit, riding the meteorite that allegedly killed the dinosaurs. (This mass murder has not yet been proven in a court of law.) Upon arriving to Earth and witnessing the chaos that his death-rock had brought upon the planet, Vedder decided to try and bring peace to mankind by performing sad songs to crowds of drunks alongside several musically innept mortals. They would go on to become Pearl Jam. Vedder is seated at the right hand of The Father He Does Not Know.*

11 and Celebrity DeathmatchEdit
Eddie Vedder created Pearl Jam in The 90's, after several of the children he fathered reached adulthood. Unaware of his paternal relationship to them, the children joined the constantly-drunken Vedder and performed music in bars, nightclubs, ampetheaters, and carnivals. Vedder quickly became friends with fellow musicians Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley, and they gained fame on alternative rock music circuts as being the last three bands in the Seattle area that sucked too much to become famous.
This changed when Vedder, KoBain, and Staley united as The Wonder Twins, superheroes sworn to fight the evils of sobriety. Bored, stoned teenage kids quickly fell in love with their bad voices, fuzzy guitars, and utter unlikeability, and Pearl Jam released it's first record, "#", to positive reviews. One reviewer called it, "delicious," while two additional reviewers called the first reviewer "ugly" and "dumpy."
The album sold well on the strength of the songs "Black" (A song about a girl), "Oceans" (a song about a girl), "Once" (a song about a girl), "Porch" (a song about a girl), "Why Go?" (a song about a girl), and "Jenny" (a song about a gun-toting adolescent fat girl).
To gain even more fame, Eddie Vedder challenged Kurt Kocaine to a public brawl, due to Kocaine proclaiming his repeated three chord, distortion dretched sound was much better that Vedder's 15 chord distortion, whammy, and ketchup dretched sound. A bloody, unholy conflict ensuthed that came to be known as "The Rodney King Riots". This brawl is often played on late-night MTV 7, under the title Celebrity Deathmatch.
The No Crowd era ______ . . . .Edit
After the concept album No Crowd got seven platinums and and one planitarium only three days after its release, with huge hits like "Hail Hell" and "Off He Jacks", Pearl Jam decided to reinvent the Hip-Hop, this time with a new name: Rap. After another huge success with "Rio Tact" (The DVD version included a massive carnival orgy starring Snoop Dogg, Oscar Wilde, and Paris Hilton), the future seems rather bright for the lads ______ . . . .

The Parl Jeam era ______ . . . .Edit
They are back in 2006 with their new album. With songs like: Fucking Wasted, Army Deserve, Big Whale, Fucker in the sand... they come back hard as ever ______ . . . .(Editor's note: this whole article sucks.)
In 2009, Pearl Jam returned with a super deluxe reissue of its seminal debut album, Stan. This anniversary edition features the entire album remixed in Real Audio monorail sound by Brendan O' Brien, a video of the band's full air miming performance on MTV unplugged in 1992, the full album available as downloadable content for Air Guitar Hero 4 video game, 2 12" record set of the band's 1992 performance headlining Seattle's Shit in the Park and a glossy flat of then tour manager Eric Johnson's naked asshole as he was beginning the act of taking an actually dump in the park and was captured by former band photographer Lance Mercer, 2 12" record of the band's 92' unplugged performance, PLUS an 8-track of Eddie Vedder's answering messages at his apartment in San Diego while he worked as a janitor and later a gas station attendant during majority of the 80's and finally an autographed piece of toilet paper signed and used by Eddie Vedder himself as part of his doo-doo ritual at the band's rehearsal space at the Galeria Potatohead in Seattle.
Delete Key (2009)Edit
On June 1, 2009, it was confirmed on Conan O'Brien's Variety Hour that the band were returning to strictly Vinyl and Cassette format for their latest release, Delete Key, on September 20th, 2009. One of their latest songs, which they also previewed on the show, "You Want Some Of This? (Cum and Get Cum, Stupid Song Stupid Song, This Is A Stupid Song, Flotsam Jetsam Cummin On And Cum Son! Stupid Son Stupid Son I Have Stupid Son)", made it's way to all corners of the internet with the recent conclusion of the "Where's Pearl Jam?" promotional effort in July, and can now be heard on various websites, as well as the CD itself, which finally came out.
As well, in August 2009, accompanying the CD, Pearl Jam revealed and released a fuzzy 7" decorative dildo to the public, with the lyrics to two of the new songs microscopically inscribed into it: The Devo cover "Whip It", and "Sonic Blast". One of the group's many anti-war songs. The band have jokingly stated recently that this has been "the best promotional idea we have ever put our heads together on". Much to their disappointment, however, nobody laughed. So, with the awkward silence that followed, they did what any self-preserving human being would do, and changed the subject.
Struck By Lightning (2013)Edit
In July 2013, Pearl Jam announced the upcoming release of their 10th studio album, Struck By Lightning. A concept album about when vocalist/ukelele player Eddie Vedder, literally, got struck by lightning under shady circumstances whilst lost at sea for a period in 2005. Many deep and introspective songs are expected to make the final cut, such as the album's lead single about his troubled childhood, entitled "(I Should've) Minded My Manners." Two other songs have since debuted such as the clairvoyant "I Can See The Future", and the brutal display of force, one not seen since the first three CDs, through the album's title track, "Struck By Lightning."
The album in it's 100% full entirety is slated for release on October 15, 2013. Producer Brendan O'Brien has confirmed it will follow the same, strict Vinyl and Cassette release pattern as the previous album, Delete Key (2009).
